Ambient House

October 2, 2021 - January 15, 2022

Virtual Event Virtual Event

This house is heated and cooled entirely from ambient energy sources (solar for heating and nighttime ventilation for cooling), thus the name “Ambient House.” This is accomplished with a balance of solar gains, ventilation losses, thermal mass and a well-insulated envelope. The design methods to achieve such performance combine the best aspects of passive solar and Passive House, and are applicable across all US climates (see the journal article cited in the video).
